The Animal Welfare Association Launches Planned Giving Campaign

The Animal Welfare Association (AWA) of Voorhees is launching a planned giving campaign to help their animals. Donations can be given in many forms, including wills, annuities and trusts; life insurance and retirement plans; and gifts of appreciated property.

Executive Director Maya Richmond says, “Supporting AWA through planned giving allows us to effectively carry on our mission of saving the lives of our community’s animals for years to come. Many people choose planned giving because it provides a financial advantage and allows people to make a larger gift than they otherwise could and it is easier than you think.”

Animal Welfare Association“When I walk around our property, I am so grateful for the generosity of donors like Robert K,” continues Richmond. “He worked as a night watchman for RCA and lived a simple life. He had a significant pension, however, and left part of it to AWA. Because of Robert’s compassion for animals, we were able to address our outdated clinic and build a new and larger low-cost spay/neuter and wellness clinic, which will help our community’s animals for generations to come.”

To make a planned gift, call Richmond at 856-424-2288, ext. 109 or visit
